In 1950, the Department of Special Collections at UCLA ac- 
quired en bloc the library of the late Professor Abraham Wolf, Head 
of the Department of the History and Philosophy of Science at the 
University of London. At the time, the library was the largest private 
collection of works by and about Baruch de Spinoza, and included 
Spinoza's works in many editions, important biographical and criti- 
cal works about his writing, and a collection of titles of books 
Spinoza was known to have owned. 

Among the more important items in the collection are the Codex 
Townley, thought to be the earliest manuscript of J. M. Lucas's La 
vie de feu Monsieur Spinoza; one of two known copies of the first 
edition of Lucas's La vie et Vespiit de Mr. Benolt de Spinoza; and 
issues A through D of Spinoza's lyactatus theologlco-polltlcus, not 
recorded in Linde. 

While the Wolf collection was duly cataloged upon its arrival, it 
was not converted to machine readable records during the UCLA 
library's recent retrospective conversion project. The Department 
of Special Collections recently received a grant from the Ahmanson 
Foundation to recatalog the Wolf collection on OCLC, and records 
for the collection should begin to appear later in 1990. In the 
interim, we thought it would be useful to publish the Internationaal 
Antiquariaat's catalog in facsimile, both to acquaint interested 
libraries with the holdings now at UCLA and to share Menno 
Hertzberger's descriptions.

The library of the late Prof. Dr. A. Wolf 

Head of the Department of the History and Philosophy of Science, 

University of London 



Cable-address: Rightbook Teleph. 34107 


As our 150th catalogue we offer for sale the famous Library of the late Prof. Dr. 
A. Wolf, Head of the Department of the History and Philosophy of Science, 
University of London, on Spinoza — his life, doctrine, circle, contemporaries, etc. 
It is the largest private library about the life and v.'ork of Baruch de Spinoza, who 
perhaps was the most versatile and original thinker of all ages. Every aspect 
of the work, life and influences of this world-famous pioneer, a.o. of modern 
biblical criticism, is included in this very extensive collection. 

We do consider it superfluous to give here even the shortest biography of 
Spinoza, about whom so much has been written. There is hardly anybody in history 
who has been so much admired and so much attacked, but whose influence 
has been and still is so strong. His works are not only important for the history 
of philosophy but also a.o. for theology (e.g. pantheism) and politics. 

Even an ephemere glance through this catalogue of over 1300 titles will 
convince the reader of its importance, which at the same time is a tribute to the 
ardeous zeal with which the learned collector made his library. 

Besides an acknowledged authority on and a very great admirer of Spinoza, 
Prof. Wolf was also a bibliophile. This latter quality counts for the excellent 
condition of almost all the books in his library. It took him some 45 years to 
form this collection. 

We here find Spinoza's works in several editions, the works of predecessors 
who influenced him, of successors whom he influenced, as well as works of 
biographers and critics of the great philosopher and general works on the 
history of philosophy. 

The collection — the largest ever offered for sale — has even a section giving 
(for a part) a reconstruction of Spinoza's library, according to the inventory 
edited by Servaas van Rooyen. 

It is only very occasionally that we have used the adjectives "rare", "scarce", etc. 
Exceptions are only made where it concerns the very greatest rarities, such as the 
Towneley Codex (no. 306), the second known copy of the first printed edition 
of Lucas' biography (no. 307), the issues A — D of the Tractatus theologico- 
politicus (no. 361 — 363*), the first Dutch translation of this work (no. 367) 
and several others. 

To classify this collection into sections was rather a difficult task as they are 
all interconnected. For the convenience of the reader we have referred to related 
works, or works by the same authors in other sections. 

When annotating this catalogue, the central point was Spinoza, his doctrine, 
life, influences etc. Therefore the notes in this catalogue are only devoted 
to the various connections of the described works as far as related to this "great 
and good man", as he was called by Toland. 

It is evident however that many books are also in other respects of great 
interest for the history of philosophy and of theology, etc. 

To enumerate here the hundreds of valuable and rare books would be a 
pleasant task, but we prefer to let the collection speak for itself. 
We hope that the books enumerated in this catalogue will be for further use 
to all those who want to study the subject, which is of such eminent importance 
for the development of modern thought. 

We therefore offer the entire collection up to August 13th 1930 for 
Quilders 36000.— (£3365/-/-; $9485—).

Coicrus' description is one of the two most valuable sourcts for the life of Spinoza, the

minister at The Hague since 1693 and made there the acquaintance of the landlord with 
whom Spinoza had been lodging during the last years of his life. This man, Van der 
Spyck, was in the position to give many important first-hand informations about Spinoza 
and was interviewed by Colerus several times. The work of Colerus is in several places 
contradictory to Lucas, in others strikingly homonymous.

The Codex Towneley. From the description by Prof. A. Wolf, who edited the Ms. („The 
oldest biography of Spinoza", London 1927; with 2 facs. of the Ms.), we quote the 
following particulars: 

„A number of manuscript copies of the Lucas biography have been unearthed .. These 
manuscripts have all been examined by Freudenthal and Dunin-Borkowski. The fullest 
and most reliable account of the collations of the diff:.-rcnt manuscripts has been published 
by Dunin-Borkowski in the Archiv fiir Gcschichtc der Philosophic (vol. xviii, 1901). The 
main conclusion arrived at is that the best of the then known manuscripts, that is the one 
which gives a text most like the original Lucas biography, is the Paris manuscript. Codex 
No. 2235 in the Bibliotheque de I'Arscnal ... usually described as Codex A." 
„Since the publication of the results of DuninBorkouski's researches another important 
Lucas manuscript has come to light. For reasons to be explained presently, it will be 
<lescribcd as Codex Towneley, or Codex T for short. This manuscript appears to me to 
be both older and better than any other manuscript discovered hitherto. It has nearly 
all the good points of Codex A- and others besides..." 


„The story of the Towneley Codex has not yet been completely ascertained. The most 
important clue to it consists of a book-plate inside the front cover. It is the book-plate 
of John Towneley, of Towneley Hall, Lanes. J. T. was born in 1697, and died in 1782. 
He was in Paris in 1728 (and )held a commission in Rothe's Franco-Irish Infantry 
Regiment from 1731 onwards. The suggestion lies to hand that he probably picked up 
the manuscript in France or in the Low Countries". 

From internal evidence it would appear that this earliest Life of Spinosa was commenced 
shortly after Spinoza's death, in 1677, and finished either in 1678 or at the latest in 1688. 
It has been attributed to de Saint-Glain, but the evidence in favour of Lucas' authorship 
is much stronger, and the foremost Spinoza scholars who have made a special study 
of the subject (v. Dunin-Borkowski, Freudenthal, Meinsma, Meyer) agree in considering 
Lucas as the author of the „Vie de feu Mr. de Spinosa". 

Jean Max. Lucas, who died at the Hague in 1697, was presumably, like Descartes and 
other distinguished men, turned out by France, as too independent in thought and free in 
speech to feel safe in his native country. In Holland he conducted in turn various 
periodicals, and was arrested and fined repeatedly by the Dutch authorities for publishing 
things offensive to Louis XIV. 

Lucas was a free-thinker, apparently also a Rosicrucian. If he was the author of the Life 
of Spinoza, he was most probably also the author of the Spirit of Spinosa, which follows 
the Life in the Codex Towneley and several other manuscripts, and in one of the two 
editions printed in 1719. 

The Codex is written by a very neat and regular hand, and is in excellent condition. 
A document of primordial historical importance for the life of the great Dutch philosopher, 
and without any doubt in this field the most precious item. — See reproductions pi. II.

307 La vie et I'esprit de Mr. Benoit de Spinosa. [Amsterdam, Charles le 

Vier], 1719. Green morocco with arms (18th century), gilt back, gilt borders on 
sides, inside dent., gilt edges, sm. in — 8. — Splendid copy. 

The first printed edition as an independent volume; of the utmost scarcity. Only one other 
copy known. The attack on Christianity contained in the second part of the work, 
L'esprit de Spinosa, provoked such consternation that the book was suppressed almost im- 
mediately after its publication, and this suppression was so rigid, that only t iv o copies 
are known to exist: the one in the University Library at Hale-Saale, and the 
present one. In the same year 1719, the first part only was published as an article in the 
Nouvelles Litteraires (vol. x, pp. 40 — 74); of this edition, which thus did not contain the 
Esprit, only three copies, now all in public libraries, have survived. See Wolf, The oldest 
biography of Spinoza, pp. 28 ff. and v. Dunin-Borkowski I, 46 ff. 

Facing the title-page there is mounted a copy of the (false) portrait of Spinoza „with 
the hat", engraved by Desrochers and first published in 1727 (see Altkirch p. 72/73). 
The copy, in a fire binding of the second half of the 18th century, is in excellent 
condition throughout. — See reproduction pi. I.

This is really the first part of the complete Le Vier edition of 1719 (see above) re-issued 
with a new title-page and a modified preface, and without the L'Esprit de Spinosa. 
See Wolf, p. 29. Extremely rare; only six copies are known. This re-issue is very probably 
also published at Amsterdam. ,,Alle diese Exemplare sind bald verschoUen... sechs Exem-

ca. 1768). Marbled calf, sm. in —8. — v. d. Linde 101a (Corrigenda).^ 

This work is not, as one would expect, the French translation of the well-known Latin 
treatise „De tribus impostoribus", but the same as L'esprit de Spinosa, very probably written 
by Lucas (see nr. 306 — 308). The book was placed on the Index in 1783- 
After the Traite there are included: Sentimens sur le Traite des trois imposteurs. 
Reponse a la dissertation de M. de La Monnoye sur le Traite des trois imposteurs 


(by P. F. Arpe or J. PvOusset de Missy; see Piesser, Das Buch „De tribus impostoribus", 
p. 92 — 96). Copie de I'article ... des Memoires de Litterature, imprimes a la Haye ... 1716. 
The present copy has no separate title-page, but is very probably in this state quite 
complete. The text begins on fol. A(l) v/ich a large heading comprising almost the top half 
of the page; and, wh:-n identical with the edition listed by v. d. Linds (Corrigenda, or. 
101a), it contains the right number of pages. Moreover one finds on one of the fly leaves 
an old (18th century.-*) inscription: „Cette edition est sans titre, et la meilleure". 
This very rare edition not in Presser. The place and date of publication are as given by 
Barbier IV, 788.

The Principia is the first printed work of Spinoza and the first one with his full name 
on the title-page. The preface was written by his friend Lod. Meyer (see nr. 364, 426, 
427, 433), who also edited the work, because Spinoza, living at Rijnsburg at that time, 
could not supervise the printing himself.

361 [SPINOZA], Tractatus theologico-politicus. Hamburgi, Henr. Kiinrath 
[Amst., J. Rieuwertsz], 1670. Vellum, in — 4. — This issue not in v. d. Linde. 

The only work of Spinoza published under his own supervision, but anonymous and with 
a faked address. First edition issue A, extraordinarily scarce. Land speaking about the 
differences between the 4 issues (Over vier drukken met het jaartal 1670 van Spinoza's 
Tractatus theologico-politicus) says a.o. that he only knew one copy (at Koningsbergen). 
Issue A is to be considered as the best being printed directly from the manuscript. 
According to v. d. Linde the printer of the book was a certain Christ. Conrad, but later 
investigations showed that it was actually printed by Jan Rieuwertsz, the same who had 
published the Principia. The work was prohibited Under Willem III on the 19th of July 
1674 (Knuttcl, Verbodcn boeken, 391).

Disguised French translation of the Tractatus theologico-politicus by De Saint-Glain. As 
the work was forbidden in 1674, the title was changed. The same translation was also 
published under the titles „Reflexions curieuses d'un esprit desinteresse" and „Traite des 
ceremonies superstitieuses des juifs" (see no. 371 — 3). 

The translation is historically important, as it contains at the end (30 pages) „Remarques 
curieuses et necessaires pour I'intelligence de ce livre", cont. annotations by Spinoza 
himself about the Treatise, written in the margins of a copy of the Tractatus only a few 
months before his death. They are published here for the first time. For the Latin text 
see nr. 366.

With portrait of Spinoza and some woodcut figs. Vellum, in — 4. — v. d. Linde 22. 

First edition of Spinoza's posthumous works, compr. a.o. his famous Ethica. The book was 
edited by Jarig Jelles, one of Spinoza's best friends. Only one day before his death 
Spinoza arranged that his posthumous works should be sent to Jan Rieuwertsz in Amster- 
dam, who also published his Principia of Descartes and the Tractatus theologico-politicus. 
In the book neither author, nor place nor editor are mentioned. This was no superfluous 
precaution, for in 1678, hardly one year after Spinoza's death, the work was already 
prohibited by the States of Holland as being „prophaen, athcistisch cnde blasphement" 
(Knuttel 377). — Contains 1 Ethica. 2 Politica. 3 De emcndatione intellectus. 4 Epistolae, 
et ad eas responsiones. 5 Compendium grammaticcs linguae Hcbracae (112 pp., with 
separate title and pagination). The preface, written by Jarig Jelles was translated by

It was generally accepted as being written by Spinoza himself; it caused much discussion 
and several answers were written against it. See Meinsma 268/269 and v. Dunin-Borkowski

428 LA COURT, P. de — CONSTANS, L. A., De jure ecclesiasticorum liber 
sin^ularis. Alethopoli, 1665. Vellum, sm. in — 8. — v. d. Linde 54. 

One of the Opera apocrypha, of which Spinoza himself declared that he had not written it. 
The work originates from the circle of John de Witt. According to Colerus Ludwig 
Meyer was the author, Leibniz, who knew both Spinoza and de la Court, however supposed 
that the latter wrote it (L.A.C. = La Court). The work is to be considered as the 
immediate precursor of the Tractatus Theologico-politicus. Riedel inserted it in his 
Spinoza edition. — See Freud. -Gebhardt I, 153. 

429 [CARROLL. W.], Spinoza reviv'd or a treatise proving the book entitled

The anonymous author of the above work is William Carroll, English theologian. The 
"Right of the Christian Clergy" is one of the opera apocrypha, wrongly ascribed to 
Spinoza by Carroll and his contemporaries. It was actually written by Lucius Antistius 
Constans [pseudonym for De La Court (van den Hove)] (see no. 428). The author of the 
first work quoted in this title "The rights of the Christian church" was Matthew Tindal.

A curious coincidence is, that in the Bibl. Rosenthaliana at Amsterdam a copy of this work

in one contemporary binding.

famous five articles, which became the charter of the English deists. It is the first 

purely metaphysical treatise written by an Englishman.

mark on last page. Vellum, sm. in — 8. 

Renouard I 294. Brunet III 984. Second edition, and the first Aldi'ie. „La premiere 
edition a ete impr. a Rome, 1535, mais elle est moins recherchee que les reimpressions 
aldines" (Brunet). 

Leone Ebrco (Judah Abrabanel), physician to Don Gonsalvo di Cordoba, wrote his 
Dialoghi d'amore in Italy, after his family having been forced to leave Spain. The work 
was written in 1501 — 02, but it was not until 1535 when Leone's friend Mariano Lentzi 
rescued the manuscript and took care of the publication of what became the most 
popular philosophical work of its age. 

Spinoza had in his library a copy of the work (sec Servaas v. Rooyen p. 152) and was 
influenced by its ideas. He derived his doctrine of the amor Dei intcllcctualis from 
it and „man kann S. systematisch nicht interpretiercn, wenn man ihn nicht genetisch 
aus den Motiv-Verbindungen Leones versteht" (Gebhardt).

Basilae, 1629. Vellum, in —4. 

First edition of Buxtorf's translation. Maimonides, the most famous Jewish philosopher 
in the Middle Ages, was the great exponent of reason in faith and toleration in theology. 
His influence on the philosophy of religion during many centuries is incalculable. Christian 
Europe owed much to him; one of the main services of his „Guide" was its independent 
criticism of some of Aristotle's principles. 

About the indeed very large influence of his ideas on Spinoza see v. Dunin-Borkowski, 
Freud.-Gebhardt, Pollock, etc. passim.

Very rare. Frans Kuyper (Cuperus) (1629 — ca 1692), first a vicar at Vlaardingen and 
later on a printer in Amsterdam and Rotterdam, played a leading part in the liberal 
movement of the "CoUegiants". Especially he is known as a violent opponent of Spinoza. 
His contemporaries considered him as capricious, unreliable and false: see a.o. Meinsma, 
p. 98, 101, e.a. A large part of the above work in dedicated to a refutation of the 
4th chapter of Spinoza's Treatise: see v. Dunin-Borkowski in Chron. Spin. IV, 112 ft.

646 FILMER, Rob., Patriarcha or the natural power of Kings. London, 1680. 
With portrait by van Hove. Calf, sm. in — 8. 

First edition. This work advocating "the divine right of Kings" occasioned Locke's celebrated 
"Treatise on government" by way of an answer. Filmer appears as a sharp opponent of 
democracy when he says: "It is unnatural for the people to govern, or chose governors".

was in the possession of Spinoza (Servaas v. Rooijcn pp. 161/162) and it is about 

this work that Spinoza wrote to his friend Jellcs, that he found it unworthy of an 

answer. Yet it is an important item for the history of the criticism of Spinoza's philosophy.

This fierce atheistic treatise — the three impostors are here Christ, Moses and Mahomet —

title (see nrs. 309 — 318), nor with Kortholt's book (see nrs. 303, 304).

Joh. J. Miiller, a German, who lived from l66l — 1733 and might have written the work 
between 1685 — 95 under the title: De impostura religionum. It circulated in a number 
of manuscript-copies and was first printed at Vienna in 1753, the publisher trying to 
safe-guard himself against persecution by faking the date into 1598. Of the original 
edition only 7 copies are still extant. About the book and its relation to Lucas' work with

Extremely scarce and unknown to v. d. Linde. Von Tschirnhaus (born 1651) one of 
Spinoza's visitors and correspondents was largely influenced by his ideas. It was v. Tschirn- 
haus who introduced Leibniz to Spinoza's philosophy and thus caused the meeting 
between the two philosophers. See about him a.o. Meinsma pp. 383 seq., 390 scq., 416 seq. 
„In diesen erkenntnistheoretischen Werken ist Spinozas methodologischer Tractat oft

p. 159 ff, etc. Velthuyzen very probably was also the translator of Hobbes" Leviathan 
into Dutch (see nrs. 653, 654). According to Servaas van Rooijen, p. 185, Spinoza possessed 
a copy of the above work.

instance, lacked no less than 15 plates. In the present copy there is only missing, ace. to 
the index of plates which lists 32 portraits, the portrait of De Labadie — but possibly 
this one was never issued, as the ample description in the catalogue of the Freudenthal 
collection also gives a number of only 31 portraits in all.

first edition. Written in consequence of Mendelssohn's Morgengedanken iiber Gott und 
Schopfung (Berlin 1785), in which the latter opposed against „die Spinozisten oder All- 
Einern". Thus started the controversy Mendelssohn-Jacobi, which caused the publication 
of a number of polemical writings by the two adversaries and several others. 
A discussion about Goethe's poem „Prometheus" between Jacobi and Lessing, in 1779, 
led to L.'s famous remark: „Es giebt keine anderc Philosophie als die Philosophie des 
Spinoza". Jacobi gives here a full report of the discourse at that occasion, of which 
report Mendelssohn questioned the accuracy. The then following correspondence between the 
old and the young philosopher led to the important rediscovery of Spinoza by the 
romantic school. 

The „Prometheus" as well as another poem by Goethe, „Edel sey der Mensch" appear 
here in print for the first time.

Reimarus (1694 — 1768), scholar and son-in-law of the famous Fabricius, is best known 
by his „Apologie oder Schutzschrift fiir die verniinftigen Verehrer Gottes", which he care- 
fully hided during his lifetime and from which certain chapters were published by 
Lessing. The point of view held in the Apologie is that of pure naturalistic deism.

1231 SHELLEY, Queen Mab. London, W. Clark, 1821. Polished calf (mod.), 
gilt back and edges, inside dent. — Large copy of this first published edition. 
Shelley in his younger years was a declared atheist. The Queen Mab was his first poem 
of any importance, and its exceedingly aggressive tone in matters of religion and morals 
would not allow publication. This was an unauthorised issue, and in a letter to the editor 
Shelley disclaims issuing the volume; for the publication Clark was sentenced to four 
months' imprisonment. 

In the notes there is a large quotation from the Tractatus theologico-politicus of Spinoza, 
for whom Shelley also in later years had a great admiration. 

The idea suggested by Shelley before his death (Nov. 1821) to give an English trans- 
lation of the Tractatus (with preface by Byron) was never fulfilled.
